Meet the Designer: Jackie
This young 23 year old is a bundle of joy, beauty, and spunk. She walks around the compound, laughing and talking with her fellow coworkers, and busting out Seaweave bracelets like there’s no tomorrow. Despite her outer happiness, she has gone through a lot of trials. At a young age her father died, and then later her husband. She now has 3 children and is able to put the older two through school with the income she is making at 31 Bits.
Prior to working with us, Jackie had no previous experience rolling beads. But because of her curiosity, ability to learn quickly, and love for fashion, she has become one of our best bead makers. She has big dreams of becoming a successful business woman sewing intricate tablecloths and other tailored goods that she will sell all over Uganda. Her biggest hope is for her children to attend school all the way through University, since she never had the chance. Jackie has shown herself a hard worker, encourager, and leader among our beneficiaries.
